Welcome to my July to September Mayor’s Report.

Dear Member,

Welcome to my July to September Mayor’s Report.

I want to first thank and pay tribute to all those who put their names forward to stand as Hackney Labour Councillors in next year’s local elections and to those members that took part in the process. We now have fantastic teams in place in every ward in the borough with in an increase in our diversity and I look forward to campaigning with them in the weeks and months ahead.

Over the summer we have seen continued success in our schools, the formal launch of the Hackney 100 work experience programme, new apprentices recruited by the Council and the re-naming and expansion of the Council’s employment support and training service as Opportunity Hackney with Hackney Works at its heart. This is the foundation of my commitment in last year’s election to expand opportunity for all Hackney’s residents.

We continue to campaign on education, police cuts, business rates, acid sales and regulation, against the 1% pay cap and now on behalf of our fellow Hackney EU citizens – making good my promise to be a campaigning Council. Only today I was proud to join Cllr Jonathan McShane as he and Dave Prentis, General Secretary of Unison signed the Ethical Care Charter building on our work as a London Living Wage borough.

I think we were all inspired by Labour Party Conference and together we can now start work on Hackney Labour’s Manifesto for 2018 with the first event our Hackney Ideas Factory taking place for members on the weekend of 14/15 October at Urswick School. Please put the date in your diary and look out for the email from me and Labour Group.

Best wishes,

New road improvements round Clapton Pond will make it safer for pedestrians and improve the landscape.  

Lea Bridge ward councillors have supported the Clapton Pond Neighbourhood Action Group in their campaign to make access to the Pond easier.

And some recent problems in the area with drug dealing and prostitution have been dealt with in liaison with local Police and Hackney Council’s community safety unit.

“ The Pond is an oasis in a very busy urban landscape – we want to see it kept as an area which everyone can come and enjoy,” said Cllr Ian Rathbone.

 Councillor Carole Williams, Cabinet member for Employment, Skills and Human Resources, launched the Council’s new apprenticeship programme in March, 2017,which will see 100 apprentices working across a host of council services by 2018/19.

In July the Council advertised for apprentices for a wide range of service areas across the Council including business and administration, youth work, customer services, multi-trade, gas engineering (commercial), electrical, carpentry, revenues and communications.

All of our apprenticeships last at least 12 months, combine work, on and off the job training, and study towards a recognised qualification in a relevant subject.

The Council has committed to paying all apprentices aged over 18 a salary of around £19,000 per year, which is above London Living Wage, and well above the average apprenticeship salary which is around £13,000 per year.
